CoveCare Center is honored to be the recipient of a $35,000 grant from Field Hall Foundation as part of its Winter 2020/2021 Grant Awards. The grant will support CoveCare Center’s Senior Partnership Services Program, the only mobile therapy program for seniors in Putnam County.
Working with the Putnam County Office for Senior Resources and The Prevention Council of Putnam, the program reaches Putnam County residents aged 55 and older who are struggling with mental health or substance use issues and unable to access traditional services due to barriers such as finances, mobility, and transportation. CoveCare Center offers assessments, care management, and counseling in the home or at another convenient location at no cost to eligible seniors.
A nonprofit organization, CoveCare Center has provided mental health, substance use, and supportive services for individuals throughout the Lower Hudson Valley since 1997; the Senior Partnership Program began in 2017. “We are so grateful to the Field Hall Foundation for awarding us the opportunity to expand this program. We will be able to connect with so many people who otherwise would have gone unheard and unseen, and who would have continued to suffer because they could not access our services. Having this mobile team has been vital for Putnam County,” stated Mariel Roth, Vice President of Programs at CoveCare.
Field Hall Foundation is a private foundation whose mission is to improve the lives of older adults and their caregivers in Dutchess, Putnam, and Westchester counties. The funds awarded through its recent grant cycle will be used to pilot, support, or expand programs in mental health, domestic violence, safety, transportation, and food insecurity.
“The funds from Field Hall Foundation are so appreciated and will allow us to reach even more community members in need. Especially now, feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression are heightened; we are also seeing increased substance use among our senior clients,” stated Eric Toth, CEO of CoveCare Center. “We are very thankful to have the support of the Field Hall Foundation.”
